Can someone please help.......?
I am using a DCF77 with Thijs Elenbaas library as it exists. On an UNO.
All code works perfectly as long as I have Serial Monitor on (not just USB connected to PC).
However, if I do not have a Serial Monitor the DCF77 software will never 'time' update and remains stuck in a loop. If I connect the Serial monitor ( and Uno resets ) the DCF77 will update time in 2 or 3 mins and then keep updating even if I disconnect the Serial Monitor.
So every time I power-up my project I need to connect Serial Monitor for about 5 mins till the DCF77 updates time, which is a real pain.
I have googled and there is a person with the EXACT opposite of my problem. Code only works when NO Serial Monitor. His solution was to buy a different DCF77 !!!!!
some notes ... 1) In Thijs Elenbaas website examples he refers to 'Utils', but this does not seem in be used in library (though in zip file).
2) I am not clear if In need #define VERBOSE_DEBUG 0 or 1 - does not do anything for me.
3) All print commands are commented out - so no output on Serial Monitor
Lastly can I 'fool' the UNO in thinking Serial monitor is on, as a solution B ??
This problem just does not make sense to me - so hopefully someone can point me....
